27 September 2016The Chinese toluene industry is increasingly active with the country importing 700-800k tonnes of toluene per year, making it the world’s largest import market. Around 10-12k tonnes/month of contracts – out of 60-70k tonnes/month – are signed on a CFR (cost & freight) China basis.
To give you complete visibility on trading activities, ICIS has further enhanced its coverage by including CFR China price assessments. The newly added assessment is widely used by market players as a benchmark or reference for pricing toluene in the region.
The enhanced report will make it much easier for traders/producers/sellers in other regions to view both international and domestic prices in one Asia Pacific report.
